Apple iPhone 6 to pack NFC support, suggests a leaked schematic


GeekBar shared a set of schematics showing that the iPhone 6 would come with NFC support, with an image revealing the alleged details on an NAND flash chip for the upcoming device.

The Chinese gadget repair firm first shared a schematic showing that the iPhone 6 will feature 1GB RAM, which turns out to be the actual design for the NAND flash component used in iPhones and other devices. The 1GB description on the schematic represents internal storage instead of RAM in reference to the NAND flash module.

GeekBar also shared another picture on Weibo, showing a PN65V near field communication chip used on semiconductors.

However, the image is questionable. Apple’s customary offering include BlueTooth and Wi-Fi support for short range communication and a combination of both for the iBeacon standard. Experts say that such a sudden major change is unlikely to happen.

Previous rumours point to the A8 processors with the alleged 1GB of RAM as Apple is said to be looking to offer a powerful device to support processor-tense tasks. Rumours have it that the Cupertino might offer different memory options for the 2 models – a 4.7 inch and 5.5 inch screens.

Apple is yet to officially confirm any of the reports.
